Dont blame the sponsor that sold you that fish it is an illangi nkamba bay but they sent them the junk and send the nice yellow illangi to those who pay for them.

Let me rephrase that they sell the premium illangi to those importers who pay a premium like Greg to get them in.

Believe me, when I was looking for Ilangi I made it very clear that I was looking for YELLOW Ilangi and that is not what I received ! I won't implicate anyone at this point because it is the past and I have moved on. However I find it rather interesting that several sellers on various forums now supposedly have the REAL DEAL. I try my best to always see pictures of the actual fish I am laying down money for and if pictures can't be supplied that is a huge red flag.
Hey if you are lucky enough to get the real yellow Ilangi I am more than happy for you

Sounds like he was implying that it's not the importers fault that he ordered ilangi and didn't get the yellow varient as he couldn't afford it. But the bottom line is that an importer Should know better. They shouldn't sell a troph as one when its another. If they didn't know that it wasn't what they ordered or what the customer wanted, they shouldn't be importing fish... but on the other hand, if they knew that they didn't get in the troph that a customer order and sent them to the customer anyway... Once again, they shouldn't be selling fish, let alone importing them.

There are Way to many shady people in the world these days. Or to stupid and or careless. Its sad that many people feel that they cant even trust anyone anymore. There are so many ways that people can get screwed and so many people willing to do so for a quick pocket of coins...

People mentioning situations like this always reminds of the time that an importer mentioned on this site that exporters have admitted to them that they will sell one fish as another if they are similar Just to "move" them.

Sorry for the rant....

Once again, BEAUTIFUL TROPHEUS!!!!
